"I don't know Jeremy Corbyn, never met him, never spoken to him".

Mr Trump attacked the mayor on Twitter moments before he landed in the United Kingdom, reigniting a war of words between the pair.

Anti-Trump demonstrators held placards as they protested outside of Buckingham Palace.

I said no. He is somewhat of a negative force.

Though Donald Trump tweeted on Monday that he hadn't "seen any protests yet," his critics were in full swing for day two of his state visit to Great Britain.

"As far as the protests, I have to tell you, because I commented on it yesterday", Trump said, referring to his tweets on the subject.

Donald Trump has described Jeremy Corbyn as a "negative force", revealing that he has rejected a request to meet him.

A Labour spokesman confirmed that Corbyn had proposed meeting Trump during this visit, adding: "Jeremy is ready to engage with the President on a range of issues, including the climate emergency, threats to peace and the refugee crisis". I want to be able to have that dialogue to bring about the better and more peaceful world that we all want to live in.

Video recorded by a reporter from Leading Britain's Conversation showed the man at first arguing with protesters while wearing a red "Make America Great Again" hat - the symbol of Trump's 2016 campaign that's become a lightning rod for a growing number of those on the left who say the MAGA hat is synonymous with racism, bigotry, and hatred. I am not, absolutely not, refusing to meet anybody.

Mr Corbyn and other senior figures in the Labour shadow cabinet had declined to attend the state banquet on Monday night, as did Speaker John Bercow and Lib Dem leader Sir Vince Cable.

Earlier today, the 20ft "Trump baby" blimp, which became the focus of last year's protest during Mr Trump's first visit to the United Kingdom as president, took to the skies for a second time after permission was granted by the Greater London Authority.
